The new look

In April, I posted about the SearchMe a search engine that returns screen shots of retrieved websites, and arranges them for browsing like pages of a book.  Another tool that employs a similar aesthetic, ie. the Mac-like 3D look that explodes and brings the selected item to foreground, is Foxtab; install it as a Firefox extension, and you can display your tabbed pages in 5 different layouts:

Stack - Tabs are 3D-stacked one behind the other.
Wall - Tabs are displayed on a wall (similar to a TV store).
Grid - Tabs are aligned on a grid.
Row - Tabs are arranged horizontally.
Circle - Tabs are placed around a 3D circle

Viewzi is a selection of search engine interface that present many different viewing options for Google, MSN, Ask, and Yahoo, and other search engines. Views are tailored to the search topic, ie. weather, shopping, news, video, etc. Makes Google look very plain indeed.
